STERLING, Va., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — InferX Corporation (Pink Sheets: NFRX) today announced that it has completed its merger transaction with business intelligence consulting and services firm The Irus Group, Inc. The merged entity will continue to be known as InferX Corporation. Both firms had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in November 2008 to jointly pursue contract opportunities with government agencies, financial services and healthcare firms.

The merger with The Irus Group has already begun to introduce InferX technology and solutions to a wider base of prospects. Since 1996, The Irus Group has emerged as a star consulting firm in the planning, implementation and development of complex Business Intelligence (BI) and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solutions. Irus has successfully implemented projects across a broad cross-section of clients in the Government, Financial Services, Retail, Manufacturing, and Telecommunications markets. Irus has provided business solutions for a blue-chip list of clients which includes MasterCard, JP Morgan Chase, ConAgra, US Navy, US Army, and US Air Force. The Irus Group had begun introducing InferX solutions to these accounts and many of its technology partners since the MOU was signed.

"Now that the merger is completed, we look forward to accelerating our marketing, sales, and product development efforts in order to bring our next generation solutions to market," said B.K. Gogia, InferX Executive Chairman & Founder. "We have used the last several months to introduce our solutions to the Irus Group customer base, which includes Fortune 500 companies with critical operational requirements, thus providing a new customer base for InferX solutions. We are very encouraged by the reception to our solutions."

Irus had revenues of $4,707,925 and had an operating loss of $204,146 for the year ending December 31, 2008. The post-merger consolidated revenue for InferX from January 1, 2009 through August 31, 2009 was $4,973,172 with net income of $250,271. Irus is in the middle of several IBM/Cognos TM1 implementations for the US Navy and other federal agencies. In 2010, InferX expects an increase in revenues and profits due to its new management team and focused execution strategy on delivering measurable value to its existing Irus clients and new clients in the market sectors listed below.

Vijay Suri, CEO & Founder at The Irus Group and now CEO of InferX, said, "This merger is the perfect evolution for The Irus Group based on our successful legacy in the Business Intelligence and Corporate Performance Management fields.
